Free Video Call Recorder for Skype 1.2
Free Video Call Recorder for Skype is as simple to use as one, two, click.

There’s no doubt that Skype is a powerful communications tool, but one of the biggest restrictions comes when you want to record conversations. Free tools exist, but are usually cut-down or limited in some way, which is fine for short calls, but less helpful if you want to record a lengthy chat.

Free Video Call Recorder for Skype is one of those “does what it says on the tin” tools – it’s free, records video and audio Skype conversations and there are no strings attached. It supports three recording modes: audio only (both sides), video of the other side only, or picture-in-picture for recording video from both sides of the conversation.

It’s ridiculously simple to use: choose what you want to record, pick an output folder to store the finished recording in and click Start. You can pause the recording at any point, or click Stop when you’re done. If recording video, the app will automatically wait until the video conversation starts before switching recording on.

Audio recordings are stored in MP3 format, while video is stored in the Apple-friendly MP4 format. This helps keep file sizes down, and MP4 files should play back okay in Windows using Windows Media Player – if not, consider converting them or using a tool like VLC Media Player.

Unlike other tools, Free Video Call Recorder for Skype isn’t integrated into Skype itself – it’s designed to run alongside it. There’s also no indication to the other party that they’re being recorded, so it’s up to your conscience to determine if you let them know you’re recording them.

The tool does what it does admirably – and all without making things unnecessarily complicated. It would be nice to have a choice of recording formats, but if you’re looking for a quick, easy – and above all free – way to record your Skype conversations, this is the tool for you.

Verdict:

Refreshingly simple, but effective free tool for recording both audio and video calls in Skype.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
